Miss USA

No, I didn't watch it or tape it, but I did see the final questions asked to the two leading contestants. Miss California, Carrie Prejean, was asked by Perez Hilton,

Vermont recently became the fourth state to legalize same-sex marriage. Do you think every state should follow suit? Why or why not?” After this question there was some token applauding.

Prejean responded:

Well I think it’s great that Americans are able to choose one way or the other. We live in a land where you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite marriage. You know what, in my country, in my family, I do believe that marriage should be between a man and a woman, no offense to anybody out there. But that’s how I was raised and I believe that it should be between a man and a woman. Thank you.” After her answer there was a great deal of applauding.

What a great answer in a very difficult forum.

In his blog, Hilton called the answer “the worst answer in pageant history”. He later remarked "She lost not because she doesn’t believe in gay marriage, she lost because she’s a dumb *****!"

Like I would really want my daughter to be asked questions by this jerk.

Good for her for not putting aside her values of right and wrong. Of course, you need to know that Perez Hilton did not like that answer because he is gay.

Needless to say, Miss North Carolina won, while Miss California finished 2nd.

Are we willing to state what we unequivocally believe about Jesus to those who might not agree? Remember if you are willing, say it with love.
